Karen Thompson Walker The Age Of Miracles

It is never what you worry over that comes to pass in the end. The real catastrophes are always unimagined, unprepared for, unknown. What if our 24-hour day grew longer, first in minutes, then in hours, until day became night and night became day? What effect would that slowing have on the world?

Sophie McKenzie Close My Eyes

It’s been eight years since Gen Loxley lost her daughter, Beth: eight years of grief in which nothing’s really moved forward, for all that her husband, Art, wills it to. Gen has settled in to a life of half-hearted teaching, while Art makes  their fortune – and pressures her into trying IVF  again. For Gen, it seems a cruel act of replacement. Then a woman arrives on Gen’s doorstep, saying her daughter was not stillborn, but  spirited away as a healthy child, and is out there …

M. L. Stedman The Light Between Oceans

Would you accept a chance for happiness even if it wasn’t yours to have? This is a story about a lighthouse keeper and his wife, who live on a lonely island with just seagulls, stars and buffeting winds for company. It’s a story about right and wrong, and how sometimes they look the same

Her husband is nowhere to be seen. On the other side of the world, unhappily estranged from her daughter, is Alice’s mother, Violet. Forced to leave the idyllic Wiltshire village, Imber, in which she grew up she is haunted by the shadow of the man she loved and the wilderness of a home that lies in ruins
